Video Tutorial for Proven Stress Calculation

I often see young engineers who understand the information presented so far, but have great difficulty implementing the process. I was once the epitome of this engineer. The first time I was asked to analyze a structure, I couldn’t do it and turned to FEA. (That was the wrong decision)

The video below goes though, step by step, how to:

  • Setup the loads and moments
  • Determine where you should take sections
  • Calculate bending, torsion and shear
  • Combine stresses with Mohr’s Circle
  • Compare the stresses to the yield strength

This video should take a lot of the mystery out of the calculation process. The process is fairly universal and is readily applied to many different situations.
